Work is death in disguise

I really dug this article. I'm a sucker for sweeping statements and populist tub-thumping. [Link.] [Via.]

I'm a socialist to the extent that I believe it's society's moral imperative to sacrifice its largess to eliminate human suffering. But I've always been uncomfortable with the valourization of work in traditional socialism. It is more honest to be a miner rather than an investment banker, but spending your whole life doing either, I think, shows a dearth of imagination.
